I've come to the conclusion, based on what's been said, that the only evil ever known to the world is white christian males.
Not true - American beer is pretty much the worst evil. The christians can be good or bad, but it usually seems like the ones who actually walk what they talk are not the ones who attempt to recruit online...

Quote:
That's it's pointless to believe in any higher ideal than mankind
Not pointless if it works for you, but remember that it doesn't work for a lot of other folks, and that they are tired of hearing about it
Quote:
and that anyone who does, is naive, stupid or brainwashed.
Actually, I think it's more a case of fatigue or lack of reasoning ability arising from a lack of a balanced diet in the primary years, but that's just my opinion, which I realise a lot of people don't hold, hence I don't go on to the christian websites and ask how many of them suffered from a lack of vitamin supplements as children.

Quote:
Guess I may need to raise my level of intolerance and bigotry so that I can properly chastise those who don't agree with me so I can show my pureness of spirit and how my way is better than any other way.
No - feel free to maintain whatever your current level of them where it is. If intolerance or bigotry and chastising floats your boat - fine - just keep it to yourself and no-one will mind because they don't know. The vitriol is only unleashed when an individiual attempts to convince other folks of something that they know intellectually and spiritually to be untrue.

A rejection of the christian or islamic or jewish doctrine should not be interpreted as a lack of spirituality or idealism, it should just be taken as a rejection of the christian or islamic or jewish doctrine...

IMHO organized religion is worse than organized crime... at least they tell you how it is and dont BS you! I didnt start a thread on the best way to shotgun a beer because these people probably dont care, and quite possibly i'm the only on that does.I wasted 3 minutes outta my life that are irreplaceable viewing this crap, L8ter

edit: oh yeah, nice boat. tell us about it. we'll be interested in that subject.

Glad to see i have nothing to fear and you sailor guys and gals have more topics to to discuss

Personally I would like to see what you call LA (lower Alabama) annexed into West Florida, Baldwin Co. at least. I get tired of people making generalisations about my living in Alabama. Though most is true. Then again property taxes in Florida are higher so never mind.

A reasonable posting by Missionary immediately hijacked into various diatribes that have nothing to do with the OP. Generally, it is considered good manners to offer nothing, when you have nothing to offer. Interesting that those of an atheistic bent felt compelled to jump to their own defense in the face of no attack.

I associate with many persons of deep faith, the topic of religion rarely comes up. The atheists I know, apparently including those here, immediately go off the deep end the minute that God or religion is mentioned. There are many routes to faith, or rejection of faith, but long explanations of the unexplainable are not one of them.

Missonary apparently shares his faith with like minded individuals overseas, while practising works that better the overall living conditions in the communities he is visiting. Apparently, if someone is interested, he is willing to share his faith. That seemed to be what he was doing when he asked an innocuous question, no doubt, aimed at like minded thinkers. Perhaps the question should have been posted in "off-topic" but, "gen disc" does pull in a lot of topics that should be elsewhere anyway.

The response of sailnetters was poor manners at best.

Sway,
It definitely should have been in off topic. Had nothing to do with sailing. Merely an excuse to launch a religious thread. Deserved everything he/she got. A pox on the lot of them.
